Noor’s 76th Urs with Special Guest Shrabani Basu
Pir Zia Inayat Khan, Noor’s nephew and current lineage carrier of the Inayatiyya, and special guest Shrabani Basu, will host an online ceremony celebrating her life and sacrifice on September 13, 2020. The following day will be the world premiere of Noor’s play Aède of the Ocean & Land. The term “Urs” comes from the Arabic word for wedding and is used to refer to the death anniversary of a Sufi Saint in South Asia. The Inayatiyya, which was established by Noor’s father Hazrat Pir-o-Murshid Inayat Khan, considers Noor the first saint of their lineage.
